Soft pastel provides a rich selection of colours. It creates unique dreamy and foggy effects which gives a harmonious feeling; and it is easy to carry, thus suitable for outdoor sketching. Pastel paintings are usually drawn with fingers, allowing painters to express their personal feelings freely by connecting to the colours and paper. Painters can communicate and interact deeply with the scenery and the painting by practising pastels.
This 1-day workshop allows participants to learn basic pastel sketching skills, then complete at least two paintings with the natural landscape of the garden as themes, under the guidance of the artist. Beginners and those with drawing experience are welcome.

David is enthusiastic about painting and nature conservation. He often carries his easel to the countryside, fish ponds, wetlands and other landscapes for outdoor sketching. He joined KFBG as nature education volunteer in 2019 and has been serving as tutor for several local nature conservation organisations. His hopes are to help people communicate with nature through gorgeous colours and rhythmic brushstrokes, and to rediscover themselves and nature’s beauty through painting.
